Package: libjs-chosen
Version: 0.9.11-2
Severity: serious
Tags: sid stretch

[ Filled as an RC-bug by the maintainer to see the package auto-removed
  from testing. ]

I packaged libjs-chosen as used by owncloud, but owncloud is going away,
see #816376. There is a priori little point to ship libjs-chosen in the
next Debian stable release.

I intend to follow up with an RM request in a few months if nobody
objects (but feel free to beat me to it).

Yes, if you don't want to maintain this, please orphan the package. It'd be good
to have it maintained by pkg-javascript though.
